THROW THE BUMS OUT!!! **Updated**Submitted by FireTeamforFreedom on Fri, 06/20/2008 - 09:39
No offense to BUMS but we need to make a simple statement. And this is an easy one.
From top to bottom the majority of our elected officials have been corrupted. This may be the easiest way to send a message accross the board. Maybe this has already started but I suggest we kick start the campaign for liberty with a THROW THE BUMS OUT initiative.
With a few exceptions, we promote the idea of voting against all incumbents. Whether Republican or Democrate or even Independent. We all agree to vote for whoever is running against the incumbent. This goes from the Congress all the way down to the county school board. Lets send a message that unless our elected officials start working for the people.... theyre GONE!
If we can't elect the next president at least we can get them shaking in their boots! Our movement is capable of effectively changing the outcome in at least 30-40 congressional seats and possibly hundreds of other races and if we promote the idea I'm sure we can find many people who agree with us! If we can grow our movement from 5-10% to 15-20% of the voters we could influence nearly every Congressional election and many state and local races as well!!
UPDATE 1 (6/22) Here's the HOT LIST of BUMS!
Those who voted for the FISA/ telecom immunity "compromise"
Those who voted for the War Funding Supplemental "compromise"
UPDATE 2 (6/22)
The COWARDLY co-sponsors of House Con Res 362
A little 6 minute rant on THROWING THE BUMS OUT!
Just click "Here" and download the podcast.
UPDATE 3 (6/25)
I got this link from another post. It's a very good description of the problems we face with a possible solution.
I haven't viewed the entire series but I think it's educational at the least. We need to get rid of the "Incumbent Party"!!!
UPDATE 4 (7/24)
The latest Housing Bill HR 3221 Amounted to the largest Nationalisation of private property since the Russian Revolution, the instutution of a fingerprint registry for American citizens and another IRS draconian measure to record all credit card transactions... and Kucinich voted for it. So much for Kucinich as our freedom fighter.
Senate passage of FISA (69-28)
Senate confirmation of Gen. Petraeus (War Criminal) (95-2)
Throw the Bums out!!!!
